Smoked Trout and Eggs
Some good friends of ours brought us some fish they had smoked earlier this week. They gave us a whole smoked brown trout and a whole smoked Kokanee salmon. I decided to use the trout first, since Devin doesn't really like salmon (I know- crazy, right?).
When I was little, I remember my parents occasionally eating salmon and grits. I decided to riff on that a little and scramble some eggs and add the smoked trout.
Here's what I used:
The process was simple. I added some salted butter to a preheated skillet. After it melted, I threw in the white part of the scallion and let it soften a bit. Then I added 4 eggs whisked with salt and sriracha. When the eggs began to set, I stirred them around. Right before I sensed they were done, I threw in the smoked trout. After distributing it in the egg mixture, I took it off the heat and garnished it with the scallion tops. Like I said before- next time I will add cubed cream cheese when I add the trout.
This was simple and very good. I spread my eggs on half a bagel- then added some sliced cucumber!
